New MMORPG titles come out every year, but only a few manage to pick up a loyal fanbase. Where most die out in the beginning, others become desolate digital wastelands of AI and NPC units. It looks like Amazon Games Studio’s precious project, New World is about to face a similar problem.

Amazon’s New World is collapsing under the weight of bad reviews

Getting a good review and keeping your ship sailing is not an easy task for any game developer. New World is now facing the same problem despite the massive hype behind the MMORPG game. According to a report by Gamerant, New World’s massive launch has quickly turned into a nightmare, as fans continue to review bomb the game.

In the first week since the launch, the fanbase of the title swelled up to nearly 1 million concurrent players, and the game received positive feedbacks.

However, things have dramatically changed in the second month as the compilation of the reviews has turned mixed on Steam; no title in the modern era ever releases without having its fair share of flaws.

The community came across loads of bugs and issues that soured the entire gaming experience. It seems like Amazon Studio should have delayed the launch to 2022 instead of rushing things. Even after 2 months since launch, the studio hasn’t rolled out any major update to fix all the issues plaguing the game.

It looks like the honeymoon phase is indeed over and the community is actually leaving legitimate reviews based on several hours of gaming experience.
